Music Note Necklaces

Happy Wednesday! Dawn Rene here to share two music note stamped necklaces I made for my daughter's friends for Christmas.

I stamped a music sheet from the Don't Be Washi set on white card stock with light brown ink. Then I stamped a note from the Music Notes set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on top of it. I covered the stamps with a fixative spray. You can use any type of fixative, but this step is important so that the ink doesn't bleed when you add the diamond glaze. Even archival ink will bleed.

I cut out a one inch square and glued it in a bezel I bought from Joanne's. I don't recommend this specific bezel because the hole at the top is very small so it really limits the chains you can use with it (unless you add jump rings which I didn't want to do). Normally I solder my own bezels but I wanted to show one that didn't require soldering.

I filled the bezel with diamond glaze. You can also use resin or liquid glass. Before the glaze dried I sprinkled some You're So Fine Silver Glitter over the pendant to add some bling. Teenage girls love bling. On one of the necklaces I attached a fresh water pearl. On the other necklace I attached a fresh water pearl, a tiger eye gemstone, and a black onyx gemstone.

I created tags to use as "packaging" for the necklaces. The necklaces are hung over the top and down the front of the tags. The edges around the front of the tags are dusted with You're So Fine Silver Glitter. I made pockets in the back where I stuffed the rest of the chain. The "Happy Holidays" sentiment is from the Christmas Tidings stamp set. I cut the words apart so I could stack them. Then I finished off the back of the tags with faux stitching.

I stamped the Music Notes on white grosgrain ribbon which I tied on top of the tags. Here is another picture of the necklaces on the tags. I hope the girls like them!
